So on to the painting,,,,,,,,uh? isn't that what the post is supposed to be about anyway???? Well I am actually multitasking as I type this from bouncing back in forth outside to laundry to folding laundry and adding a video on YouTube and cleaning up the bathroom off of my room. So yep its multitasking. All I can say is "WOW" not only do I go from one process to another "OMG" just amazing process! I can hardly believe how one painting is like my so called favorite and then you do another workshop and bam now its this one is the favorite. This class actually started in 2014 and here it is 2019 and I am just getting back to it. I am sorry I missed the time frame but not all of us can work on our art when we want to, but here I am now getting it done and the class is still available for purchase so its all GOOD!!!! Go to Donna Downey's Website 48 weeks so you can join in on the fun....and see which one of the painting becomes your favorite in your own process.
Here I have tried to show you the gold paint
again the gold paint in more detail and I just love the "dream with your heart" stamp from Unity Stamps
the girl really made the whole final touch to the process
note the layers
again in my happy little place on my porch
This is that happy little place if you haven't seen it before
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE REST OF THE WEEKS
Well let me tell you about this little story....I ordered my first prescription Costa sunglasses when Dusty got his glasses which was a really big deal....first off I don't usually a so called name brand. I had justifications for this commitment one we work outside almost all day off and on....so the polarized glasses make them better for your eyes and much clearer. I did get the glass frames as I tried on a bunch and those were the best for me. You need to really protect your eyes well while in the sun. Two white with blue are the same glasses I had when I met Bruce and really never have seen glasses like that before much or ones for me....as Cathi said at the eye doctor (we have known Cathi since the girls were little) she used to live in Gates County and her daughter goes to school with Colten now. She has been working at the eye doctor as long as I can remember and Alexis, Amanda, and Crystal (now Dusty) have worn glasses forever. SO these COSTA prescription sunglasses are a pretty big deal....well it had been six weeks from the time I ordered as they are only made in the Costa lab and then shipped to the eye doctor with my prescription. So its been a right good wait well you know it is summer time.....
Yesterday morning while I was in the chicken coop she called and said UPS had just came and guess what was in the box....with a gift.....MY GLASSES on my birthday too! Yep yesterday I celebrated my 51st birthday.....wtf I always say I ask myself "how did I get here" (a lyric from the Talking Heads song) how did this happen, well it did and now I am 51!

The morning of my 51st Birthday
NOW I HAVE SAVED THE BEST for LAST............
On Bruce's birthday and my brothers birthday Josh WE HAVE A NEW BABY GRANDSON
Congratulations to our son Bruce Jr. and daughter in law Kimberly for the birth of the fourth child
He is so adorable of course I see my Jr. all over again....so tiny and precious.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Look at his tiny precious face and hands oh my goodness heart flutters
On Sunday I made a big dinner and they came over to visit, my aunt came too I made two cakes a pineapple upside down cake per Bruce's request and a German Chocolate Cake per Colby's request.
I didn't take a pic of the pineapple one I cooked it in the cast iron skillet as Bruce likes the best. Everyone loved the pineapple cake the most they said. So I think perhaps Colby may request that one again.
I had made Bruce his own tiny smash cake (extra cake batter) hehehe
This is the German Chocolate Cake and behind it is the Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Always so much to talk about right.....well I better close its now time to go collect eggs, make some goat milk yogurt and finish up things outside.
Have a great week....
btw I am doing better from my sickness I was not feeling good for about two weeks....kept on going but it was hard.
